What people eat and drink seems to reflect their respect for the environment, hence all the fast food wrappings and soft drink cans littered around Harbour Town. Luigi
I think it would be shocking to think the Candyman may stand for mayor – he does not set a good example by having a wife and girlfriend along with his children and all his extra women living under the one roof. Also, he lives his lavish lifestyle by selling cheap tobacco which is causing major health problems in Australia. I hope nobody votes for him, he would ruin the clean image of the Gold Coast.

Obama back on CNN. He was all show and no go, all talk and bugger all action. Trump makes him look so puny.
I’m tired of the advert on Channel 10 for Pointless, why watch, it’s POINTLESS!
One good thing when you go to a Suns game – you can always leave early. MC
To the fool who texted about mums not being maternal by sending kids to kindy, school and grandparents. It’s called modern day cost of living. Some mums need to work! Nothing to do with “careers driven”. - thorted
Mark Latham is my favourite politician. Most are boring, good-for-nothing parrots, drably repeating out-of-touch party slogans. But Latham is an expert at fitting both feet in his mouth at once. Entertainment plus. Can’t wait to see what he comes out with next. Dave

Dr Graham Sayer on climate change. So succinctly put.
But the climate change zealots will not like it one bit. Darryle Knowles, Main Beach
When we think about how absurd it would be if big Trav the Candyman becomes mayor … spare a thought for all those who giggled at the thought of Trump for President. Just a thought … Father Bob.
To be honest, I can’t see the Candyman being any worse than any of the local, State or Federal fools already in power. Jus Sayin, GC
Why do politicians have to kiss babies? I find it quite nauseating and icky. Wouldn’t let some stranger kiss my baby. Ewww - Old chook
I agree with you Andrew, the scientific evidence proves the Gold Coast is totally unsuitable
for a CST. Economic evidence also backs this. Still they try. Perhaps the council could release the 50 or so pages they forgot to show us on the original report. We the taxpayers paid for it all. GARY.
The thing you have to understand about Donald Trump is he is really, really, really intelligent, and everyone else isn’t.
How did I survive? My mum had no fridge, lead water
pipes, the bread and milk sat on the bench, as did the meat. Everything got the sniff test, if it smelt bad it was bad. And we had real milk. She used the same bag for 20 years, with meat, veg, eggs (no boxes), fish. So what is the drama about bags now? Glyn
To Rod Riguez, Chatroom, July 18. You are correct in writing that tariffs on imported goods makes them more expensive. Please understand that is the whole purpose, so
that people will not buy the imported goods, but buy locally produced products, thus supporting local businesses. Al
All this hysteria over whether The Donald trusts his intelligence agencies. Of course he doesn’t, after all, weren’t these the same agencies that told us there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, which we then invaded? GT
I cannot believe Qld Transport Minister wants to see more traffic growth before another motorway to Brisbane is considered. He should resign after that statement as he knows there will be with continued population growth happening for decades to come. If funding is the main reason then push the Premier harder now, not when the cost will increase in future. NSW is spending tens of billions on infrastructure
in the Sydney region to cater for new airport being built while Qld is spending peanuts with a new runway to open soon in Brisbane which will mean even more tourists for the GC next decade from overseas. The money must be found otherwise the Coast will grind to a halt. The Dominator
I once thought the housing bubble idea was nonsense but not anymore. $500,000 houses will be worth about $350,000 once rising interest rates purge them of their counterfeit value. The battler will be financially wiped out while the rich swoop from the sidelines to snap up the bargains. - Phyllis
Never mind smokers. Sack the Facebook addicts. They’re the real bludgers in the workplace. Dave
